1.0 out of 5 stars LESS THAN YOU KNOW January 7, 2012
By Hansen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When they wrote mini they meant super mini. It has yarn and needle comments. Casting on, casting off and knit and purl stitch in English or Continental style. Stockinette stitch, garter stitch. A very simple scarf(no picture)a bag think sew up sides of scarf and a hat think rectangle, sew up side (for this they had a picture) and how to make 2 tassels for it.
That's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little book April 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent little book to get you started with knitting. The explanations are clear and the illustrations work very well on the kindle (something I was a bit concerned about before buying the book). It is a very short book, which has the advantage that you can get started fast with what you really want to do, that is knitting. The back side is of course that even before you finished your first simple scarf you will want to buy some more exhaustive book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just enough May 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is just enough knowledge in this book to help me start knitting. If there had been too much I would have felt overwhelmed. I truly enjoy the instant access to Kindle books.

1.0 out of 5 stars written by dummies April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not the perfect example for beginners . Yes it gives instructions but they are not detailed enough. I had to use a separate source just to begin my cast on. I bought this book hoping to atleast have an idea of what to do, sadly I didn't get that.

It still didn't show me an accurate casting on for knitting. I will go on UTube for better visual instructions.
